Mohammed Shami speculated as “to be dropped” would play for India. Shami playing in Australia series, and is available with his all time best performances time and again. He was dropped for a longtime since India lost to Pakistan in the World Cup T20I match by 10 wickets. Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami tried their best to defend 152. But lost to Pakistan without picking a single wicket. India scored 151 by losing 7 wickets in the 2021 ICC Men’s T20I World Cup.
“His fitness wasn’t an issue and he bowls by hitting the deck hard to create doubts in the minds of the batters”. Says Sunil Gavaskar, the cricket commentary expert and former India cricket player and former India cricket captain. With Mohammed Siraj, at his peak at the age of 28 years, Mohammed Shami in his early thirties (32 years), there’s lot for India in the bowling department.
Kuldeep Yadav as a top wrist spinner and top of that Yuzvendra Chahal too. The two would again play as twin-bowlers for India if not in #INDvAUS early on Feb 9 and Feb 17, the two Tests. But then again wait for two other Tests to come.
The Test squad for India to play Australia announced for the first two Tests. And it’s likely that Sarfaraz Khan also would debut in the third Test as middle order batter.
It would be a BIG setback as Jasprit Bumrah still doubtful. But Shami playing in Australia series for India would suffice as good alternative or option. “His fitness wasn’t an issue and he bowls by hitting the deck hard to create doubts in the minds of the batters”. Says Sunil Gavaskar over Mohammed Shami. The current cricket expert commentator and former India cricket captain. Shami would not be left out again as Bumrah is doubtful to play. This is how India’s bench-strength too strong.
